Sabre 38 Sea Trial In Maine … In November…In 38 Degrees!

By Rich

Tuesday I took a one-day dive bomb trip to Maine (traveling Monday and Wednesday to and from) to sea trial the Sabre 38 we have a contract on. We are waiting on the surveyor’s list of recommendations but generally the trial went well. I don’t want to jinx anything by revealing exactly which boat she is so I will just tease with some photos showing some of my favorite design elements of the boat until everything is finalized. Based on the way she handled during the test sail in only 4 knots of wind, I will say this: a deep draft Sabre 38 MKII will be my next boat either way – let’s see if it all works out and this one is my next true love!
